When Lindsay and I left the hospital last week, we loaded up the van and started driving down Providence Road during rush hour. As I drove carefully (and slowly) down the road, I was amazed at the speed others passed me. Have grown up in Atlanta and spent time in New Jersey, I usually am the aggressive driver cutting through traffic. This experience, however, made me realize how isolated we are in our vehicles—unaware of what is going on in the car next to us.
One way I have found to “love my enemies” is to genuinely pray for them. Something happens to our spirit when we pray for a person who annoys us. It actually transforms us, not only them. We gain insight and empathy.
Who are some people that drive you crazy? What ways can you show them love? What things may you pray for them?
